The Chemistry and Physics Department offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry, a Bachelor of Science degree in Applied Physics, and a Bachelor of Science degree in Biotechnology (in conjunction with the Department of Biology).. The Chemistry program is approved by the American Chemical Society and offers specializations within the B.S. degree program in the following areas: (1) Professional, (2) Environmental, (3) Molecular Biotechnology, (4) Pre-Health Professions, (5) Pre-Pharmacy, and (6) Forensic Chemistry. Students completing these programs have been successful at entering professional schools, gaining employment in government and industry, and pursuing graduate studies in chemistry.

The Chemistry and Physics Department also offers a pre‑engineering program. This two-year program prepares students for entry into an engineering program at North Carolina A & T State University, North Carolina State University, and the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.

The Department cooperates with the Biology Department in offering required chemistry and physics courses for the B.S. in Science Education.

For students seeking a baccalaureate degree in Elementary Education, Special Education, or Physical Education, the Chemistry and Physics Department offers an Academic Concentration in Physics.
